Summary: Here’s what the organisers have to say:

BATTLE OF BALLOCH CASTLE CX 2015 – With air-raid sirens blaring, and the words of Lance Corporal Jones shouting “Don’t panic, don’t panic!” we’re back to save you from an unthinkable FIRST EVER Glasgow United CC-less cross season. Get it in the big ring now and brace yourself ‘cos on Sunday 4th October there’s gonna be a Battle!

We can scarcely believe we’re allowed to give you quite possibly Scotland’s most beautiful CX course. From the high points around the lap the views are stunning, great for spectators, less so for riders because it’s also going to be one of the fastest in the country so you won’t have time to look! It’s a brand new modern style course on the banks of Loch Lomond at Balloch Castle Country Park. Thanks to the mixture of fast sandy, fast gravel and fast geo-block (plastic reinforced) grass paths this is definitely a 46 tooth, bunch racing spectacle.

This is a TLi event, format will be an A and B race both open to all categories over the age of 16. Both races will be limited to 100 riders for safety.”
